I tried removing the fan and blowing out the debris after replacing the cable,but it still sticks.In time if not fixed the cable will stretch and break again.

I'll have to try what your saying.
To remove the center vent,I'm going to lube the blend door,is it needed to remove the radio?Is there any screws that need to come off?
